Resistance to common scab was tested by growing potatoes in dry sand or soil in 3 l pots placed on irrigated subsoil. Inoculated coarse sand (0.5–0.005 Petri dish culture ofStreptomyces scabies per pot) proved more reliable than naturally infested soil. The incidence of scab on the seed tubers did not significantly affect the results. Tests in the greenhouse were most reliable, although those in open air also often gave satisfactory results. For screening purposes satisfactory results can be… CONTINUE READING
